Ok my NFA paperwork came back Monday and I picked up my Sparrow yesterday. I took it out behind the house and shot a couple of magazines with and without the suppressor It is a lot quieter with the can installed but its far from quiet. I would say that with the can installed my neighbor 1/4 mile away will still be able to hear it. I admit that I went through my 22LR stash and couldn't find any subsonic ammo, just high velocity stuff. I'm hoping that with the subsonic stuff it will get the the noise level down where I thought it would be or maybe I was expecting too much. I have watched some videos on Youtube and they seem quieter than mine. I even took it apart to make sure it was all there. :confused:

Paperwork

Hmm probably is the round velocity! Congrats though, how long did it take to get the form back?
I figure thats what it is. Your supposed to be able to use the same can with 22 Mag and 17 HMR so it would help with those but you would still need hearing protection I expect. Now if I can just find some subsonic on a shelf some where. I mailed the paper work off on Aug. 17th and it came back Feb. 18th so it was 6 months. A little better than I expected.
